Middle-grade novel in progress:

HIDDEN: Two misfit 12-year-olds notice some weird stuff going on in the apartment building next door—signs, maybe, of a kidnapping. But the police don’t take them seriously, and their parents accuse them of having overactive imaginations. Then they realize themselves are being watched, and start to fear for their own safety.

MY SIX DAYS OF EPIC BRAVERY: Sixth-grader Casey is in the biggest trouble ever—she has lost her family’s most precious possession, her dad's Coast Guard medal. Or was it stolen? She's determined to track it down. Not even gross boys, not even floods, will stand in her way.
